Theatre Baton Rouge’s Education Staff has spent the last few weeks working to find the best way to keep our summer camps going as planned. Like everything at TBR, camps will go on! They will have to be a little different than what we normally present.


Each of our Under 18 camps will be moving to a digital format this summer. While the core ideals of each session stay the same, you can check out each session below for notes from the instructors on what these differences will be. One change that will affect all our sessions is class size – due to the limitations of virtual teaching, class sizes will be limited.
